How humans rx?

Post by Drine » Fri Mar 13, 2009 8:43 pm

Just wanting to know if there was additional material to be released on his album that we haven't heard yet. I know i have heard mention in the ealier days before he died of guest appearences on certain tracks and the like. or is it going to be just pretty much what we've heard already?

well my sentiments exactly. but my question should be more like, why should we care if it gets released? haven't we heard it all already?

we have already picked the layout for How Humans R(x). It is going to be in a cardboard fold out sleave (kind of like Nine Inch Nails' "Year Zero") The front cover is finished (I have seen it and approved it with Gretchen.) We have finalized the track listing and order. We are making an intial run of 1,000 copies on CD and it will be on iTunes. We are still debating on putting Robot Teeen America as a bonus on the CD since it will fit time wise, and possibly "Ordinary Man" from the TT The Bears solo show as a "hidden" track.

We still have a tentative release date of May 5th.

We are only printing 1,000 copies of the album... so it will technically be "limited release" however I honestly dont know how many we are going to sell outside the GLU / DR fanbase with the limited promotion and zero radioplay/tour support that most albums rely on.

We are also stuck in stalemate about iTunes right now with the album; me and Jeff vote yes but Gretchen votes no. Gretchen's vote holds more weight than me and jeff's combined.

cool...looking forward to it. any bonus or extra stuff is welcome as well even if it means a little higher price point.

I GOT THE MASTER IN THE MAIL YESTERDAY!!!!!! w00t

The ball is finally rolling since the master is now in MY possession and I dont have to wait on other people anymore. The only thing left to do at this point is:

-Gretchen wants to write something for the inside of the CD
-We have to approve the final artwork
-I have to listen to the master this week with headphones, track by track, to make sure there arnt any mistakes or defects with it
-Gretchen then gets a copy of the master and she has to approve the order of the songs, and the final mixes.

and then it goes to duplication!!!
